This is a really easy pattern (name of pattern: Satin – Poncho (knit)) and you’ll soon have it memorized. I recommend this pattern to knitters who want to learn how to:
- Knit basic lace
- Seam vertical to horizontal edges (see Knitty for instructions)
- Block acrylic yarn (you’ll want to block the two pieces before you seam them together)
- Knit i-cord (the pattern suggests using a ribbon at the neckline, but I wanted i-cord – I used size 3 double-pointed needles)
I knitted this poncho with yarn from my stash – Caron Simply Soft Autumn Red. I look forward to wearing this in the fall!
